Derek.. we actually found the cost of butcher shop meat quite reasonable.
(had 2 x 1 week cottages, one in Cornwall near St.Ives, othe in Wye Valley border of Wales n England, balance old pubs overnight)
UK pork is their best buy ~8gbp/kg. followed by UK chooks ~6.50gbp/kg.. Both products free range and what a difference it makes. Beef is mostly import (S Americas and Ireland...a huge exporter of beef!) The only beef we ate lacked flavour compared to our local.
Proper Ales were the hit for me with Chris a liking for local ciders. Had a brand new (70miles) turbo diesel Renault wagon which thankfully did around 50mpg......diesel/petrol ~1.35gbp/l. which is pretty savage at double our cost. Shocked

Started watching a fella on YouTube (Pitmaster X) who often talks about dry aged beef. Been wanting to give it a go. Is it easy to keep the meat in an edible state (ie. not go rancid)?

I did mine in a beer fridge over salt (do not let the meat touch the salt) at about 4c for 21 days that's seems to be the norm. Cut the crusty dark meat of and trim the fat, I cut mine into 1 inch thick steaks.
There is no bad odor just a nice nutty smell.
Nice and juicy and vey tender.

Would be interesting to see just how much better it could be leaving it longer.  I have seen them up to 120 days.

Derek I think that would be for larger cuts of meat, whole sirloin and fore rib.They do look very impressive hanging, the Charlestown butcher has whole lambs hanging, that would be tasty.

Is that the place you showed me when we were down there??  If so, yes very impressive.

Yes Derek that's the place.
There is butcher in Kotara another Newcastle shopping centre that has the same set up so the demand is there for dry aged meat.
At both shops you buy the cut you want and they age it for you. A lot of the meat has sold tags on it.
